MC5Back In The USA ... LP
Atlantic, Early 70s. Very Good ... $29.99
The MC5 move to Atlantic Records after their first album – and find a whole new sort of focus that's pretty great! Their classic debut was a raw live album – designed to capture their intensity on the Detroit scene of the late 60s – but this set has the group stretching out, and really going for something else – working in the studio for the first time, with surprisingly strong production from a young Jon Landau – and a sense of focus in the songs that shows a great degree of maturity, while still keeping all their pre-punk edges! Wayne Kramer and Fred Sonic Smith are plenty darn fierce on guitar – and the titles alone give a good idea of the energy of the record – and include "Tutti Frutti", "Teenage Lust", "High School", "Shakin Street", "The Human Being Lawnmower", and "Back In The USA". LP, Vinyl record album
(Red and green Broadway label pressing. Cover has a small cutout hole, light wear, some seam splitting, and some sticker remnants.)

MC5Big Bang! – Best Of MC5 ... CD
Rhino, Late 60s/Early 70s. Used ... $4.99
A well-collected batch of tracks from the mighty MC5 – easily the second heaviest sound to come out of the 60s Detroit rock scene after The Stooges! The package offers up the classic uncensored version of "Kick Out The Jams" – the controversial cut whose story is almost more famous than the band itself – plus loads of other gems that include "I Can Only Give You Everything", "Looking At You (A Square single version)", "Ramblin Rose", "Come Together", "Rocket Reducer 62", "Teenage Lust", "Tonight", "High School", "Call Me Animal", The American Ruse", "Shakin Street", "The Human Being Lawnmower", "Miss X", "Sister Anne", "Skunk", and "Over & Over".

MC5Kick Out the Jams ... CD
Elektra, 1969. Used ... $4.99
Forget The Stooges, forget Alice Cooper, forget the White Stripes, and maybe even forget Funkadelic – because this landmark album is one that really put the ferocity of the Detroit scene on the map – rising up the city's legacy of raw sounds next to their better-known soul and pop of the 60s – and forever putting MC5 on the great rock and roll map! The group had been honing their craft in the city for a few years before this set – and it was the genius of Elektra Records to capture them live at the city's Grande Ballroom, and not in the studio – which is part of the intensity of the record's charm, especially on the sometimes-edited bit of profanity. Titles include the seminal "Kick Out The Jams", plus "Come Together", "Rocket Reducer No 62", "Borderline", "Motor City Is Burning", "I Want You Right Now", and "Starship". CD

✨✧ MC5High Time ... LP
Atlantic, 1971. Good Gatefold ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Motor City madness from the MC5 – a searing batch of work that still has the groups kicking out the jams whenever possible! Guitars are fuzzy, freaky, and full-on – played with plenty of force by Fred Smith and Wayne Cramer, and driven home with some heavy drums by Dennis Thompson – almost a blues into funk approach, via hard rock – and definitely standard-setting work for the time. The album's often overlooked in favor of their debut, but it's well worth seeking out – and features tracks that include "Future/Now", "Skunk (Sonicly Speaking)", "Poison", "Gotta Keep Movin", and "Sister Anne". LP, Vinyl record album
(Original pressing. Sounds surprisingly nice overall. Cover has some light wear, and splitting on the bottom seam.)

✨✧ Rare EarthGet Ready ... LP
Rare Earth, 1969. Very Good+ ... $6.99
The first really major album from Rare Earth – issued on their own self-named subsidiary of Motown! The set's a perfect blend of the rich undercurrents of the heady Detroit scene of the late 60s – at one level a tripped-out rock record with styles that almost hint at MC5, at another level a batch of blue-eyed funky soul, with keen appreciation for the grooves coming out of the headier end of the Motor City indie spectrum! There's lots of tripped-out guitar work on the set – reminiscent of contemporary work by Dennis Coffey and George Clinton – mixed with a Mitch Ryder, R&B-inspired vocal style that actually comes across pretty darn well. Added to this is the group's flat-out ability to jam – showcased best in the side-long title cut "Get Ready" – a massive jammer which runs for nearly 22 minutes, and takes up all of side two! Other tracks include "Train To Nowhere", "Magic Key", "Tobacco Road", and "In Bed". LP, Vinyl record album
(80s reissue pressing. Cover has a light mark from an old sticker in one corner.)

VariousJon Savage's 1969 to 1971 – Rock Dreams on 45 ... CD
Ace (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy 2CD ... $19.99 22.99
Writer Jon Savage has given us some great dips into key years of the 60s – thanks to a wonderful series on Ace Records, which offered up a special mix of styles on every disc – but this time around, he focuses on a few years at the start of the 70s – and serves up an all-rock collection with a really heavy sound! Savage is never one to point out the ordinary – and the set does a really great job of exposing all these special shifts in the music at the time – sounds that never would have emerged just a few years before, and which have gone from having more open ties to their influences, to special territory that really shows both UK and American scenes making some great inventions of their own. As before, the notes are superb – and titles include "Broad Daylight" by Free, "Peace Loving Man" by Blossom Toes, "The War Machine" by Leviathan, "Magic Potion" by The Open Mind, "Rock & Roll Queen" by Mott The Hoople, "Devil Came From Kansas" by Procol Harum, "King Kong" by The Kinks, "Bad Night At The Whiskey" by The Byrds, "Comin Home" by Delaney & Bonnie, "Flying" by Faces, "Funk #48" by James Gang, "1969" by The Stooges, "Lie To Me" by Kaleidoscope, "Walk On Gilded Splinters" by Marsha Hunt, "Plynth" by Jeff Beck Group, "American Ruse" by MC5, "Sweet Jane" by Velvet Underground, "Rock & Roll" by Detroit, "Travelin In The Dark" by Mountain, "Yesterday's Numbers" by Flamin Groovies, and "Natural Magic" by Jack Nitzsche.

✨✧ Sonny VincentDiamond Distance & Liquid Fury – Sonny Vincent Primitive 1969-1976 (with download) ... LP
HoZac, Late 60s-Mid 70s. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A seriously strong batch of late 60s and early 70s recordings from earlier bands led by Sonny Vincent – later of relatively unsung NYC punk heroes The Testors (and featuring an unreleased Testors track) – here with early bands Distance, Fury and Liquid Diamonds and bridging the fuzzed out oozing rawness of proto punk like the Stooges and the MC5 at the time to, dare we say it, the kind of spontaneous guitar heroics of Hendrix without ever losing the pre-punk connective tissue. Vincent is a figure whose pedigree and influence reaches far and wide, having gone on from the punk era to play with Moe Tucker of the Velvet underground for years, and for being directly influential to later un-pigeonhole-able bands like Rocket From The Crypt, this is pretty great look at some of earliest stuff. Includes "She's Like Hiroshima", "Indecision", "Flying", "Aw Maw, "Scary" (the aforementioned Testors tune) and more – even a crazy old radio ad for a local NYC show that sounds like a drive-in movie clip!

✨✧ VariousJon Savage's 1965 to 1968 – The High Sixties On 45 ... LP
Ace (UK), Mid 60s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A heady dip back into the 60s – all served up by the mighty Jon Savage, who's written plenty on this pivotal time in modern music! The 2LP set is a condensation of the energy that Jon brought to his CD collections on Ace for the years 1965 through 1968 – and it focuses even more strongly on tracks that set the scene for all the changes to come – music that might sometimes seem subtle, but which had a real power to both signal coming change, and make it happen! All the tracks here are from singles – as you'd guess from the title – and tracks include "Rain" by Kak, "Train To Nowhere" by Savoy Brown, "Never Ever" by The Action, "Slim Jenkins' Place" by Booker T & The MGs, "I'm Five Years Ahead Of My Time" by The Third Bardo, "Bad Little Woman" by The Wheel A Ways, "The Other Place" by The Seeds, "Tell Me That You Love Me" by James Brown, "Agent Double O Soul" by Edwin Starr, "Too Many People" by The Leaves, "We Sell Soul" by The Spades, "Incense" by The Anglos, "That's The Way It's Got To Be" by The Poets, "Danse A La Musique" by The French Fries, "Wonderboy" by The Kinks, "Kick Out The Jams (preview pressing)" by MC5, "Hold On" by Sharon Tandy, "At The Third Stroke" by The Picadilly Line, "Sock It To Em JB (part 2)" by Rex Garvin & The Mighty Cravers, and "Help Me Get The Feeling (part 1)" by Ray Sharpe with the King Curtis Orchestra.

✨✧ Stuart CosgroveDetroit 67 – The Year That Changed Soul ... Book
Polygon (UK), 2015. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A key look at the year of 1967 in Detroit – a year in which the city experienced both riots, and riotous changes in its music scene – huge steps forward for Motown, as you'd guess from the image on the cover – and a big wave of new sounds from MC5 and other important musical forces on the rise! The book is way more than just another music volume – even though author Stuart Cosgrove has given us great work on soul music before – because the whole thing is every bit as much a detailed account of the city, its changes, and struggles on a month by month basis – as it is a document of the musical transformation that was taking place. Very well written – 426 pages, softcover, with a few black and white images. Book

✨✧ DeviantsDisposable (180 gram clear vinyl pressing) ... LP
Tiger Bay (UK), 1968. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... Out Of Stock
A hell of a record from a UK group who were years ahead of their time – the legendary Deviants, a fantastic outfit who were every bit as proto-punk as The Stooges or MC5 at their best! The sound here is raw, noisy, and nasty – very different than the flower power vibe of the time, even though these guys can plays some fuzzy guitar with the best of them – and singer Mick Farren has this way of belting out a tune that comes across with a hell of a lot of attitude and power! Titles include "Somewhere To Go", "Fire In The City", "You've Got To Hold On", "Let's Loot The Supermarket", "Normality Jam", "Guaranteed To Bleed", "Sparrows & Wires", "Slum Lord", and "Pappa Oo Mao Mao".

✨✧ VariousA2 – An A-Square Compilation ... LP
Ace/Third Man, Late 60s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... Out Of Stock
A great look at the Michigan scene before things broke big on labels like Elektra and Columbia – rare early recordings from the A Square label – some of them never issued at the time, and together a perfect portrait of that amazing new sound that was coming from Detroit, Ann Arbor, and Beyond! There's definitely a few points here that really resonate with the Elektra releases of 1968 and 1969 – and there's some other material that's a bit more gritty and garagey, but which works well with the rest. Titles include an early pre-Stooges track with Iggy Pop – "I'm A Man" by The Prime Movers – plus early MC5 material, on "Looking At You" and "Border Line" – plus "I'm So Glad" and "Get The Picture" by The Scot Richard Case, "Somehow" and "Time Of The Season" by Thyme, "Stranded In The Jungle" and "Tired Of Waiting For You" by The Apostles, "Get Down" by Half Life, "Mystery Man" by Dick Wagner & The Frost, and "Just Like An Aborigine" by The Up.

✨✧ Sun RaOuter Space Employment Agency – Live At The Ann Arbor Blues & Jazz Festival 1973 ... LP
Total Energy, 1973/1999. Near Mint- ... Out Of Stock
Classic live material, recorded at the legendary Ann Arbor Blues & Jazz Fest in the early 70s. The Fest was the brainchild of John Sinclair, the White Panther founder/Detroit radical who was also the big early manager of the MC5. Sinclair produced the set and wrote a nice set of introductory notes – but the real interest here is in the performance of Ra & The Arkestra, who are recorded live before an audience of 15,000 fans, and who include Kwame Hadi, Marshall Allen, John Gilmore, Danny Davis, and June Tyson. Titles include "Discipline 99", "Love In Outer Space", and "At First There Was Nothing". LP, Vinyl record album
